Shiny new website, same old deceits, Young people can go to university? No they can't. They can do the odd course, through online courses after which they can work in brethren businesses. So they still can't chose the subject they wish to study. They still can't be teachers, or musicians, or doctors...

Re: Exclusive Brethren ‘cult’ sues over publication of sermons

Any organisation which is partly funded by the taxpayer must be held to scrutiny. That is particularly true when that organisation is secretive, high maintenance and contoversial. The PBCC deny that they are secretive but their actions in trying to to both silence critics and suppress the analysis o...

Re: Bloody Hypocrites

I was wondering just what caused the RRT's seeming obsession with sausages. I turned to the PBCC's traditional choice of newspaper in the UK and found this from 7 August this year: Sausages are classed as a processed meat (anything that has been cured, salted, smoked, or preserved) – and, according ...

One of the charities which gave this public body some considerable concern in 2011/12 was, as most readers here will know, the Preston Down Trust. So great was Commiss...
